Subject: Where have the heroes gone
As usual J.F.K.'s mastery with words,and clear sight of right,was spectacular. This speech was probably the one which he gave his life for in Dallas. all those bigots, J.F.K. fell for honor!!! Dusty

Subject: Very well put
Very bold speech by JFK calling for an end of segregation. Very well put and bold for it's day. It is hard to believe the condition race relations were in this USA merely 40 years ago. Definately give this a stream listen!

Subject: One small step...
Good speech by Kennedy about his frustrations of the Mississippi crisis and what he intends to do about it. His solution was to end segregation here and now. I'm not a history nut, so I have no idea how long this took, but obviously something had to be done, and Kennedy here tries to take the first bold steps.
